I have 2 New Besties Cards to show you today!


Hello and hugs to all of my followers and followers to be!


I have had a very productive week, trying to fill orders, as well as my DT Work.


I still have a fair way to go, but I will keep plugging away at it!


My first card today is my DT card for the US Besties Challenge Blog

Anything Goes

For this Card I have used this cute Bestie that can be found HERE

I have coloured her with Promarkers and added some dots of Crystal Stickles.

Some flowers from Wild Orchid Crafts and my stash, and some pale pink sheer ribbon tied in a bow! Also one of my Stick pins with a strawberry charm!
The Cute Cupcake, And Sweetie Tag Diecuts are from my stash!

I had a play with pastels, adding lots of layers and distressing the edges of all of the papers.
I am also entering this card on the following:
My Second Card today is my DT card for the Scrapbook Stamp Society Challenge

I had fun colouring this fairy and gave her pink hair for something different!
The Pink and orange colour combo was a first as well, but I happened to find the perfect papers to match in my stash so that was great!
You can find this Fairy Image HERE

She is coloured with Promarkers, and I added Crystal Stickles to her wings, and some swirls in the background!

I have used my new Noor Joy crafts Butterfly Border on this card and I just love it!
I have used flowers and ribbon from my stash, and some cute hand dyed Doily's.

Your second fairy card is beautifully colored and has many intricate details. The embellishments are lovely. Thanks for showing off your project at 613 Avenue Create.

Both cards are stunning as per normal Julie :p

Please could I ask, how was the bluey sort of background around the first bestie created? Was this using the pastels you mentioned?
